My Buns Are Sweeter than Yours
I think we can all agree that time flies by, seemingly faster each and every year. This marks the 12th volume of this newsletter and 1 years passage of time. For those of you that have been keeping up with us, you know that Linda and I are earnestly trying to make changes with our eating and overall healthy lifestyle. Truth be told, Linda is out in front on this and I’m trying to keep up with her. She’s learned a ton about eating healthier to, so if you ever have questions, Linda is the better person to ask. We are however real people and not fanatics, to say the least. If you bump into us at Me-n-Eds over a pizza then you know the struggle is real.
With this educational process of learning about healthy alternatives and better overall choices, one area has recently gotten a lot easier for us. That is the choice of where to go for ice cream.
To say that Linda and I like ice cream would be a bit of the understatement of the year
The more we’ve learned about the value of organic foods the more we’ve been enlightened that this is something we need to continue to make changes toward. It’s sort of like switching from Dial-Up Internet to High-Speed access; you just can’t go back. For the younger readers out there, if you don’t understand what this means then just ask your parents.
To say that Linda and I like ice cream would be a bit of the understatement of the year. The problem though, as we are training our bodies to enjoy healthier organic food choices, the old choices don’t sit as well with us and pretty much leave us feeling pretty bad afterward. Needless to say, when we stumbled upon G’s Creamery in the fall of 2016, we were pretty darn excited.
G’s is an all natural, 100% locally sourced, handcrafted ice-cream shop. And, you’re more likely to bump into us here than Me-n-Eds. Typically in the evenings when we like to meet our kids down there and treat them to some cold organic goodness.

Now that the weather is getting close to perfect, my prediction is that we’ll be down there even more often.
Here are a few fun facts about G’s Creamery:
- Opened August 13th 12016
- Ice cream is hand made from organic milk and cream from only grass-fed cows
- Eggs come from cage-free chickens
- Chocolate is fair-trade organic bean to bar
- No fillers, additives, stabilizers or artificial flavors or coloring
- All ingredients are locally sourced from right here where we live
- They always have Peppermint ice cream which I LOVE! Linda likes Salted Pretzel.
- They’re known for their donut stuffed ice cream sandwich
And, yes, you read that last bullet point right. They make glazed donuts and you can stuff them with whatever ice cream and stuffings your heart desires. The first time we walked into G’s (before we had our groove down), I was taken back by the whole donut thing. The friendly gal that worked there was enthusiastic when she asked me if I wanted to give it a go. I have to
admit though, I just wasn’t ready to combine a donut and ice cream at the time and I chickened out.

However, the second time in, she won me over and I gave it a go. Stuffed with Peppermint ice cream and a few crushed Oreo crumbles smashed in for good measure, and it was a bit of biting into heaven on Earth. I imagine I’ll one day share a donut stuffed ice cream sandwich with Jesus as we kick back in heaven with our feet up over a great conversation.
If you like ice cream as much as Linda and I do, then I’d HIGHLY encourage you to make your way over to the South West corner of Bullard and West and give G’s Creamery a visit. If you’re a wimp like me and chicken out on the donut your first few visits, don’t worry about it because everything is good in there.
